Mississippi Pizza 5-7PM All ages A concert version of a new Gypsy Jazz Opera! What happens when a diner cook who can only make tortillas (the most delicious in the world) encounters a mafioso customer who only wants his corned beef-hash? And what about the waitress with a mouth like a sailor and her money-grubbing boss? Come and see as Hungry Opera Machine (Eric Stern of Vagabond Opera's newest endeavor) presents FLOUR, SALT AND MOONBEAMS at Mississippi Pizza November 23rd in a very special concert version of this new opera with vocalists Catherine Olson, Scot Crandal, Annie Rosen and Noah Mickens. Instrumentalists Paul Evans on saxophone and percussion, Mirabai Peart on violin and Eric Stern on piano. The style of the opera is a hybrid of modern classical and gypsy jazz (the form of music popularized by Django Reinhardt) and the ensemble members will even take solos. Not what you think of when you think of opera is it? One thing it definitely is--An opening PARTY so there will be a jazz trio the second hour, led by Eric Stern, and prizes worthy of a Roman God. The opera composed by Eric Stern, is directed by Annie Rosen. Hungry Opera Machine was founded by Vagabond Opera leader Eric Stern with the mission "to produce contemporary opera and theater in English casting primarily from the talent pool of the Portland Oregon community and the Northwest. To extend the operatic tradition by choosing operas that not only conform to the classical standard but also ones that may include other forms of music such as jazz and music from everywhere." In early 2014 Stern partnered with Dell'Arte School of physical theater graduate Annie Rosen in the endeavor. The partnership has been a crackling success. Already they've worked in collaboration with some of Portland's premier artistic organizations including Artspark, Portland Story Theater, Night Flight Aerial and more. Opera and Commedia Dell'Arte. Together again after all these years! More info: www.hungryoperamachine.wordpress.com/ www.ericsternevents.com All Ages $10 advance/$15 at the door http://www.facebook.com/events/583786011748832/

They will be presenting about the history of the Sunnyside Piazza, how the neighborhood mobilized and transformed into a village and the benefits and the realities of living in communities. Mark Lakeman will be introducing these lovely speakers with a few words of his own about his experience with Sunnyside Piazza. After the presentation, audience members interested in hosting a placemaking site will be invited to ask Chrissy and Chip any questions they may have. Placemaking applications will be on hand for folks to take home and start mobilizing their neighbors!

Have you been harassed or forced to change your name because of the recent FB policy exclaiming that your name must be real, even if it really is your name, or know someone who has? Has this impacted your social identity in any way or that of your friends? Do you like it? Do you want to tell FB that was a wrong decision? Remind them that we are doing them a service and have a lot to do with this partnership, so acknowledge our impact or lose our participation. I propose a Blackout protest - one single day of no use of Facebook where we do not see the ads posted that day, they do not get to see our thoughts, they do not get to have recorded statistics of what we did and who we talked to about what we were doing. I propose Thanksgiving when they would really like to see what we are interested in and doing. Post nothing, click on nothing, view no ads - DONT EVEN LOGIN. I also encourage people to post a comment about why and how this has impact. http://www.facebook.com/events/590291227783000/

"Walmart Workers Promise Biggest Black Friday Strike Ever" While the Waltons are by far the richest family in America, many of the Walmart workers who helped to build that fortune are struggling just to get by. From underpaid and under-appreciated cashiers and stockers, to abused warehouse workers and the more than 1,000 dead garment workers of the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh, workers around the world have paid the ultimate price for Walmart’s low wages. Workers at Walmart are just looking for dignity, respect, and a fair shot. But the silver-spooned Walton family is robbing them of any chance at a decent living. Walmart workers in nearly 800 stores have joined calls for Walmart to increase wages to $15/hr and give them access to full-time hours. If Walmart does not respond then workers have vowed to walk out and take to the streets on Black Friday. In support of striking Walmart workers and their demand, we will meet at the Walmart on 82nd and Holgate at 7pm on Thanksgiving night to let our light shine with the message "$15 and Full-time." What do we want? $15! When do we want it? NOW! http://www.facebook.com/events/306305706239831/

Triangle Productions presents a comedic look at the widows of 1956's Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein, as they sit in their renovated community center, sharing secrets as the threat of atomic apocalypse nibbles at their heels. The year is 1956, and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein is having its annual quiche breakfast. Daily life is calm and quiet, and excitement is kept to a minimum. However, there's an unexpected item on the agenda this year: the very real threat of atom bombs being dropped on their idyllic town. As the meeting adjourns to the bomb shelter, things take a turn for the worse. Cramped in a small space with the last quiche on Earth and the future uncertain, scandalous secrets come out and tensions -- sexual and otherwise -- rise among the women.

Hey Equalizers! Get ready to clean out your closets and make room for some fabulous new clothes because Equalize is having a clothing swap! What is a clothing swap? A clothing swap is an event where people bring in clothes they no longer want and swap them for clothes that someone else no longer wants! It's awesome! Everyone puts their clothes in a big pile and then sorts through to find cool things in their size. :D What can I bring? Any clothing or shoes that are in decent condition (and washed please!) that someone else might want. You can also bring other small items that might be of interest, like queer or activist-related books or zines or crafty items and supplies. If you aren't sure, just ask us by messaging Equalize or emailing alex @ equalizeit dot org. Does it cost money? We are asking folks to make a $3-5 donation to Equalize if they can, if not, just come on by anyway :) We just want to see your smiling faces! What if I don't have any clothes to swap? That's okay! Come anyway; there are always more clothes than people :) What if I have clothes to donate, but can't make it to the swap? Awesome! Please message Equalize or send an email to alex at equalizeit.org and we can arrange a time to get them from you. Thanks! :D What's going to happen to the clothes that nobody takes? We will be donating them to SMYRC or another local non-profit (in the event that SMYRC can't take them or doesn't want them).

Your attendance is highly encouraged at the: Historic Landmarks Commission Hearing 1900 SE 4th Ave, Room 2500A Portland, OR December 1st, 1:15pm The subject of this meeting is the Mt Tabor Reservoirs Disconnection and the impact the project will have on the historic nature of the park and it's structures. Each of the reservoirs, associated buildings, and the entire park itself are on the National Register of Historic Places. We all know this park is one of the gems of Portland!! The public is encouraged to testify at the hearing. The reservoirs must remain full to preserve the historic vistas and character of this park. Keeping them full allows for the possibility of reversal in the case of LT2 rule revision. We must demand, at minimum, that a condition of any project approval includes provisions that protect the future of this historic park and water works system. If not attending or otherwise delivering comments in person, comments may be submitted prior to the meeting by FAX or snail mail, not email. Address comments to: Hillary Adam and Stacey Castleberry c/o the Historic Landmarks Commission 1900 SW Fourth Ave., Suite 5000, Portland, OR 97201 or FAX: 503-823-5630 The Mt. Tabor Neighborhood Assoc. has submitted very thorough comments, including an excellent review of relevant reservoir history, as well as numerous requests for specific conditions and oversight, primarily as a means of preserving their integrity, ensuring that the disconnection is reversible and maintaining the water as the primary feature of any future use.

Have you ever wondered why the Black population in Oregon is so small? Oregon has a history not only of Black exclusion and discrimination, but also of a vibrant Black culture that helped sustain many communities throughout the state—a history that is not taught in schools. This is the focus of “Why Aren’t There More Black People in Oregon? A Hidden History,” a free conversation with Portland State University author and adjunct professor Walidah Imarisha. This program is hosted by Friendly House and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. Imarisha has taught in Portland State University’s Black Studies department, where she has created classes about topics as diverse as the history of the Black Panther Party, race and the history of prisons, Hurricane Katrina, and hip hop as literature. She has facilitated writing workshops for students in third to twelfth grade, in community centers, youth detention facilities, and women’s prisons. Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future. This event is part of Oregon Humanities’ statewide Conversation Project. Thursday, December 4th 7:00-8:30 PM. FREE, $5 donation very appreciated http://www.facebook.com/events/568183656658467/

Last year Third Rail made a splash at the holidays with our record-setting production of NOISES OFF, which many consider the funniest play written in the past 25 years. This year we're at it again with perhaps the funniest American play of the past 25 years: Charles Ludlam's quick change romp, THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP. Two actors play all the roles in this hilarious send up of Victorian melodrama, farce, 50’s horror movies, Wuthering Heights, and Hitchcock's Rebecca. With elaborate quick changes performed in mere seconds, wildly absurd characters, and an absolute distaste for anything serious, IRMA VEP should be the perfect gut-busting escape from all that holiday noise!

The kick-off party happens the first Friday of December, with an old-fashioned parade, lighting of the community tree, caroling, cocoa and cookies, and, of course, Santa. Hood River Holidays will begin on December 5th, and continue through the 24th.

Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein, as they sit in their renovated community center, sharing secrets as the threat of atomic apocalypse nibbles at their heels. The year is 1956, and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein is having its annual quiche breakfast. Daily life is calm and quiet, and excitement is kept to a minimum. However, there's an unexpected item on the agenda this year: the very real threat of atom bombs being dropped on their idyllic town. As the meeting adjourns to the bomb shelter, things take a turn for the worse. Cramped in a small space with the last quiche on Earth and the future uncertain, scandalous secrets come out and tensions -- sexual and otherwise -- rise among the women.

Grinched, a modern twist on the Dr. Seuss classic, tells the story of Mr. Grinch, the lonely and bitter owner of “Who-Mart” a “one stop shop” in the heart of Whoville. It's the holiday season and all the Whos in Whoville have a touch of holiday madness. In spite of a poor economy and paychecks that barely cover the basics, the Who's succumb to clever marketing manipulation and make Mr. Grinch a very rich man in their efforts to please their loved ones with just the right gifts. The looming question: Will the true spirit of the holidays triumph over materialism before every Who in Whoville goes broke?

Grinched, a modern twist on the Dr. Seuss classic, tells the story of Mr. Grinch, the lonely and bitter owner of “Who-Mart” a “one stop shop” in the heart of Whoville. It's the holiday season and all the Whos in Whoville have a touch of holiday madness. In spite of a poor economy and paychecks that barely cover the basics, the Whos succumb to clever marketing manipulation and make Mr. Grinch a very rich man in their efforts to please their loved ones with just the right gifts. The looming question: Will the true spirit of the holidays triumph over materialism before every Who in Whoville goes broke?

Last year Third Rail made a splash at the holidays with our record-setting production of NOISES OFF, which many consider the funniest play written in the past 25 years. This year we're at it again with perhaps the funniest American play of the past 25 years: Charles Ludlam's quick change romp, THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP. Two actors play all the roles in this hilarious send up of Victorian melodrama, farce, 50’s horror movies, Wuthering Heights, and Hitchcock's Rebecca. With elaborate quick changes performed in mere seconds, wildly absurd characters, and an absolute distaste for anything serious, IRMA VEP should be the perfect gut-busting escape from all that holiday noise!

Triangle Productions presents a comedic look at the widows of 1956's Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein, as they sit in their renovated community center, sharing secrets as the threat of atomic apocalypse nibbles at their heels. The year is 1956, and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein is having its annual quiche breakfast. Daily life is calm and quiet, and excitement is kept to a minimum. However, there's an unexpected item on the agenda this year: the very real threat of atom bombs being dropped on their idyllic town. As the meeting adjourns to the bomb shelter, things take a turn for the worse. Cramped in a small space with the last quiche on Earth and the future uncertain, scandalous secrets come out and tensions -- sexual and otherwise -- rise among the women.

Former city council candidate and Concordia University professor Nicholas Caleb will be facilitating an introductory course on environmental law and policy. Despite the fact that the City of Portland and the State of Oregon have reputations for being leaders in green policy making, there are many environmental problems in our region that are ignored or exacerbated by existing law. The idea for the course is to explain the way environmental law is structured/enforced and to provide potential policy solutions that can be implemented in our community and at the state level. Specifically, this course will highlight public trust law (in combination with rights based governance) as a vehicle for real solutions. Class participants will act in working groups to creatively apply the material to real solutions in our city and bioregion, with some working groups moving towards a ballot initiative campaign in 2016. This course will be accessible for anyone who has an interest in environmental law and policy or activism. Opportunities will be made through this event page to read the material, view class lectures and discussions, and participate in written discussion here on the page. This week we learn about NEPA. Please read pages 208-246 (skim the case law) in the file linked here: http://www.mismanagingperception.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Natural-Resources-Law-Wood-1-NEPA.pdf http://www.facebook.com/events/569707083162745/

"Commisioners Fritz and Fish invite all Portlanders to engage in a conversation about the future of Mt Tabor Reservoirs." SAVE PORTLAND DRINKING WATER NOW is reaching out to inform you about this issue as it *profoundly* effects your health, and the health of your children. Not to mention your water bills.... On December 10th, the city will hold it's second of two recent meetings about the future of Mt Tabor Reservoirs. We strongly encourage you to attend!! City Hall is working hard to shut down and replace Portland's amazing, gravity-fed, naturally-sterilized and aerated drinking water system with hugely expensive and inefficient buried reservoirs. The Federal EPA LT2 rule driving this project is currently under review and is expected to be revised in July of 2016. Science has proven that the rule is not wise. Several other municipalities across the country in similar situations have received extensions, or deferrals, esp given the financial hardship imposed by these projects. There are clearly ways around it. However, as it happens, our city's history contains an Ex Water Bureau Commissioner who eventually lobbied the EPA to write the LT2 rule, and has continued on as executive of the companies who have received all the no-bid, no cap contracts since. He continues as a consultant to this day, selling us massive detrimental projects we don't need to comply with a rule he helped write. And it gets worse from there..... At the last of these meetings, on November 18th, We The People refused to be pandered to once again and loudly made our collective voice heard. Our Commissioners have promised to respond to our concerns. Full video of the 11/18 meeting can be seen here, in two parts: http://vimeo.com/112550446 http://vimeo.com/112569863 In order to show our city we have a voice, it will take YOU and ALL YOUR FRIENDS to show up for the public hearing. Let the commissioners know that you will not stand for them selling away our health for short-term financial gain! • Tell all your friends about this, "LIKE" and "SHARE" all the posts to increase their feed!! MORE INFO ON THE SAVE PORTLAND WATER PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/saveportlanddrinkingwater Let's put politicians on notice that we are not going to stand by and allow corruption to destroy our quality of life here in Portland! Please ATTEND and INVITE ALL YOUR FRIENDS!! Power to the People requires PEOPLE! http://www.facebook.com/events/776207072417076/

When his fourth son, Gibreel, is born, Emad, a Palestinian villager, gets his first camera. In his village, Bil'in, a separation barrier is being built and the villagers start to resist this decision. For more than five years Emad films the struggle, which is led by two of his best friends, alongside filming how Gibreel grows. Very soon it affects his family and his own life. Daily arrests and night raids scare his family; his friends, brothers and himself are either shot or arrested. One Camera after another is shot at or smashed, each camera tells a part of his story. Director: Emad Burnat, Guy Davidi Country: Palestine | Israel | France | Netherlands Year: 2011 Runtime: 94 minutes

The documentary film Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control. In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics including AMY GOODMAN, DANNY GLOVER, JULIAN ASSANGE, DAN RATHER, DAVID SIMON, NORMAN SOLOMON, BOB BEAR, ROBERTA BASKIN, JOHN MACARTHUR, DANIEL ELLSBERG, JANINE JACKSON, CHRIS HEDGES, KRISTINA BORJESSON and JOHN NICHOLS give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered as the arena for public expression is turned into a private profit zone. After the screening, there will be a highly interactive panel discussion. Shadows Of Liberty is dedicated to the journalists and information freedom fighters, the heroes of our time, who dedicate their lives to our right to freedom of information - the central pillar of a free society. Shadows of Liberty provides a platform for voices that have been silenced and in doing so, attempts to inspire change and accountability. This film champions the idea of an independent media where truth and integrity are the norm, not the exception. The film is coming to town as a part of the 6th Leg of the Shadows of Liberty Coast to Coast Screening & Media Reform Action Tour. This is a free event with donations to support KBOO Community Radio and the Shadows of Liberty Coast to Coast Screening & Media Reform Action Tour greatly appreciated. http://shadowsofliberty.org/

Peacock Lane: The Essentials December 15th – 31st from 6 pm to 11 pm Lights stay on until midnight Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve Traffic is always lighter after Christmas PPD will close Peacock Lane to vehicles as needed for safety Follow @PDXPeacockLn on Twitter for updates Optional donations of cash and canned goods accepted at Cocoa Booth Please no sales or vending on the Lane during viewing hours FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 2014 Rings in Changes to Portland’s Favorite Holiday Tradition Portland Police will manage street closures to ensure pedestrian safety and prevent neighborhood gridlock Portland, OR, October 20, 2014: The holiday season is approaching, and residents of Southeast Portland’s Peacock Lane are once again planning their legendary light displays. One of Portland’s most beloved holiday traditions, Peacock Lane residents have been decking out their homes since the 1920s. As with all great traditions, the Peacock Lane event has evolved over time. Due to record breaking crowds in recent years, the Portland Police Department has decided to take a more active role this year in managing vehicle access to the Lane and on surrounding streets. “Our goal is to maximize safety, and anytime the crowds cannot be contained to sidewalks, we will redirect vehicles in order to protect pedestrians and prevent traffic backups throughout the neighborhood,” says Portland Cadet and Reserve Coordinator, Officer John Shadron. Traffic management may include closing the street to motor vehicles, or allowing right turns only onto and from Peacock Lane during peak viewing hours. Peacock Lane residents will be sending out live updates on weather and traffic via Twitter (@PDXPeacockLn) and Facebook (facebook.com/PeacockLn). Visitors to Peacock Lane are encouraged to utilize free street parking several blocks away (do not park in Walgreens lot) or public transportation (TriMet buses 15, 75, and 20 have stops within a few blocks; http://trimet.org/go/cgi-bin/plantrip.cgi), and view the lights by foot for the best experience. Those visitors who must view the displays from their vehicles are strongly encouraged to join us at non-peak times to avoid possible street closures; we recommend before 8 pm mid-week, or any evening between December 26th and 30th. As always, residents will be serving free hot cocoa and cider from the handmade booth in the center of Peacock Lane. Any optional donations collected at the cocoa booth are used to cover the costs of the event (cocoa and cider supplies, street maintenance and cleanup). In years when donations have exceeded event costs, a donation is made to a local charity selected by Lane residents. Vendors, performers, and other organizations are asked to refrain from soliciting or fundraising during viewing hours. Peacock Lane president Becky Patterson explains, “We’ve always felt that this should be a free event for the community. We will continue to appreciate everyone’s cooperation in keeping Peacock Lane festive and community-focused, rather than a commercial endeavor.”

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

- There's no place to park your bike at the grocery store. - Your kid can't bike to school because of one dangerous road crossing. - Your neighborhood association is fighting a bike-friendly project. The problem is clear. The solution might even be obvious to you but how do you get others on board? How do you get the problem solved? The Bicycle Transportation Alliance has been advocating for better, safer streets since 1990. In this free one-hour clinic, a BTA advocate will share some of the lessons we've learned about how to get your voice heard -- how to get your community's problems solved. Topics covered include messaging, defining success, power mapping, identifying allies, and pressure vs. persuasion. This month's clinic will be presented by Carl Larson, BTA Engagement Manager.

Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance.

In Other Words' Adult Young Adult Book Club is a fun, casual discussion group for fans of YA literature. We meet at In Other Words on the third Thursday of each month to discuss young adult novels through a feminist/queer lens. How do our reactions to YA literature change as we age? What messages do authors send to young people? Do the stories line up with our memories of being teenagers? We read contemporary work and also revisit classic authors like Judy Blume and SE Hinton. Sound interesting? Join our Facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/142378029143391/) to see what we've read so far, and to stay updated on what we're reading next!

The miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (Noah Mickens) is visited by three spirits (Eric Stern, Charity Marchandt, Scot Crandal) who give him a time-traveling crash course in the true meaning of Christmas. Also features Charlie Brown as Bob Cratchitt, Meg Russell as Tiny Tim, and swing royalty Russell Bruner and Pink Lady as the young Scrooge and Belle. It was Bela Balogh and Courney Von Drehle of 3LT who first proposed the idea of adapting the classic novelette A Christmas Carol with circus performances and guest vocalists from Wanderlust and their extended family of players. The historic Alberta Rose Theater was the ideal choice for this intimate family show, and an a-list cast is already forming just a week into pre-production. We all hope that our latest holiday offering will grow into an annual tradition, and bring laughter and inspiration to adults and children alike for years to come. for more information, check out: www.wanderlustcircus.com www.3legtorso.com www.albertarosetheater.com http://www.facebook.com/events/405325369625492/

We are building our communications and bridging our alliances to organize with the general public and increase awareness of After The Verdict activities.... Join Us Saturday! Tuesday, October 14th at 7pm in Moriarty Arts and Humanities Building Room 104 for the viewing of Let the Fire Burn, an 88 min. internationally acclaimed 2013 documentary film about the events leading up to and surrounding the May 13, 1985 stand-off between the social movement group MOVE and the City of Philadelphia. “Using only archival news coverage and interviews, first-time filmmaker Osder has brought to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between government and citizens in modern American history.”—Zeitgeist Films A week later on Tuesday, October 21st 2014 at 5:45pm in Moriarty Arts and Humanities Building Room 104 I invite you all back to engage with a panel of speakers who will talk about the historical events in "Let the Fire Burn" and how these events relate to situations we are seeing still today in places like Ferguson, Portland and many other towns in our nation. The panel of three speakers on October 21st includes: Ms. Mimi German is a revolutionary from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has first hand insight into the events depicted in "Let the Fire Burn". Ms. German has also lived in Massachusettes and Israel before moving to Portland, OR in 1996. Ms. German lives on a small farm with her animals. She is resolutely against nuclear power and procreation. She claims to be no “expert in anything other than one who has to date figured out how to still be standing here on Earth” and says she is simply a “Human Being and an Earth Activist. . . .a witness.” Ms. Teressa Raiford is a civil rights leader born in Oregon during the '70s as a 4th generation Black Portlander. Her family's history in civil rights is rooted in police harassment locally with the infamous possum toss by local police, the Mississippi NAACP during the Medgar Evers killing, human and labor rights Etc... Black America's struggle for civil rights is the movement she is pushing to empower. Ms. Raiford has lived and worked in Dallas TX and since coming back to Portland her focus is gang prevention. She has tun for political office, sits on several boards of social justice organizations and is currently the lead director and organizer of a movement in Portland called #DontShootPDX in solidarity with Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. She is working on various efforts for the betterment Portland. Mr. Wiley G. Barnett is a retired PCC employee who has long been involved with social justice activism. He continues to have serious interest in Black history and contemporary oppression. Because of the increasing damage to the very planet we live on and need, his attention and involvement has been increasingly on enviromental justice issues. I hope to see you there at either or both events! Film Reception "The doc's focus on period material confers an in-the-moment feel to the final product, bringing urgency to a story many in the audience will never have heard but which remains relevant after almost three decades." -John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter "Noteworthy for its “historical verite ” approach – no talking head interviews, no narration, no B-roll footage or reenactments – Let the Fire Burn brings the tragic events of May 13, 1985, back to life, forcing audiences to ask how police, fire department and city officials could stand by and watch as a helicopter dropped an incendiary device on the MOVE compound in West Philadelphia, and then let the subsequent fire rage into the night, ultimately leveling three city blocks and destroying 61 homes." -Steven Rea, Philly.com "Dispensing with the usual retrospective accounts and analytical chin-scratching, Osder creates both intensity and intimacy, inviting viewers simply to watch and listen as a tragedy — born of unchecked aggression, incoherent ideology and appallingly faulty logic — unfolds." -Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post "It’s remarkable, gripping storytelling, told in grainy footage that nonetheless crackles with life, and it leaves the viewer angry at the senseless loss of lives and property. A clergyman, on the hearings panel, quietly reminds us what’s at the heart of the entire, yearslong war between the police and MOVE: that it’s possible to forget, in the heat of anger and procedure, that the person on the other side of a conflict is a human being." -Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times Tara Foster Composition, Literature and Film PCC, Cascade Campus CFAF Coordinator Due to the weather we have relocated this Saturdays gathering to a local church located in the Dawson Park neighborhood. Bring food and beverages for potluck! We will be discussing the past two months and what our groups next steps will be to support the ongoing resistance to police violence against people in #Ferguson please reach out to as many individuals and organizations on the grounds as possible and let's use Saturday to connect with them directly as a group!!! PAST EVENTS LISTED BELOW and Just FYI ACLU training does not take 4 hours. All of our gatherings will continue to go on for 4 hrs in tribute to the time the St Louis Police let #MichaelBrown lie dead in the streets! Members of the #DontShootPDX group are ready to present "Know Your Rights" training to your group, students or organization. We believe that part of changing the brutal force culture in PPD is to arm citizens with information about their rights. Having some dialogue and sharing videos to help make us accountable for our safety. The ACLU of Oregon will hold a training this Saturday starting at 1 p.m. and continuing throughout the day till 4 p.m. ACLU organizers and Atty will train people on their basic rights when dealing with law enforcement. Are you confident in asserting your rights when dealing with police? Do you know when an officer has the right to search you? Many of us do not have the knowledge and confidence to stand up for our basic rights during an encounter with law enforcement. Knowing these rights and how to assert them should be a part of our basic education but, sadly, it is not. http://aclu-or.org/content/know-your-rights-your-rights-oregon In our community there are so many instances of hate crimes against blacks, women, our cities homeless, poor, disabled and our youth... we need to show consistent solidarity. People are afraid to be wrong, we are embarrassed by the way people view us and it keeps us from speaking out when its necessary. Tomorrow people in Ferguson will be marching. They aren't concerned about who is not standing with them because they are filled with pain. We need to follow our passion and make a stand with them. We will continue to update this event page and we ask that everyone come out to these gatherings so we can show the City of Portland, state of Oregon that violence against the people isn't acceptable. We need to start filing complaints regarding hate crimes against police officers and anyone else who discriminates and especially if it becomes physical. Join Us in Solidarity with the people of Ferguson, MO in honor of #MichaelBrown ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Groups on the ground in St. Louis are calling for nationwide solidarity actions in support of Justice for Mike Brown and the end of police and extrajudicial killings everywhere. On Saturday at 1pm -- every week after the murder of Mike Brown by a Ferguson police officer--in St. Louis they gathered at the location that Mike was shot in the Canfield Apartment buildings. We ask that you gather at the places in your community on Saturdays where police and extrajudicial killings have occurred to memorialize lives that have been lost and demand justice by ending systemic violence upon communities of color. We know that the murder of Mike Brown in St. Louis is just one of hundreds of murders per year by extrajudicial means throughout this country. There are too many names to list: Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Renisha McBride, Amadou Diallo and so many others. Just in the past weeks since Mike’s murder, the Los Angeles Police killed a 24 year-old man who was laying down when shot. Enough is enough--these killings must stop. We must end the systems of white supremacy, police brutality and inequality for communities of color that lead to these police killings. We hope that with renewed attention on this issue, we can widen the conversation to address both justice for Mike Brown and the underlying systems of oppression that play out against people of color on a day-to-day basis. Please join us this and every Saturday in calling for Justice for Mike Brown and the end of extrajudicial killings everywhere. We know that we will need powerful visuals and strategies to support our movement. In St. Louis, people have suggested using black caskets, photographs of those lost, and chalk outlines to send our message. Strategically, this nationwide event will be a tactic to help community members understand their personal rights and push for broad-based action on the issue of extrajudicial killings. Regardless of where you are, you can help move this fight forward by hosting an action in solidarity with St. Louisans demanding Justice for Mike Brown. Mike’s death was not an isolated incident, and we hope that groups around the country will use this moment to lift up and re-energize their own campaigns against systematic violence and the prison industrial complex. http://www.facebook.com/events/719132681455778/

India arguably has the largest deaf population in the world, but it is said that the number of certified interpreters are 250 for around 18 million deaf people! Sign language is still not an officially recognized language by the government. The country has no captions on television, no instructions for deaf people at public places, no TTY, no instruction through sign language in deaf schools and no deaf college or a university for deaf people. Beyond Silence is a documentary made with an intention of understanding these hidden voices in their own “words, language, and culture.” It is a humble attempt to acknowledge the existence of a living, competent, and thinking deaf community that has the ability to communicate “beyond silence.” The film is a celebration of deafness. It tries to explore and bring about a strong emotion of self-confidence and belief among deaf people. The film nowhere depicts the lives of deaf people as people with disabilities, on the contrary it questions and argues about concepts and ideas about 'being handicapped’.

Immediate Release Oct. 31, 2014 POSTAL PROTESTERS CHARGES DISMISSED More actions planned to stop the delay of mail The “postal defenders” won a reprieve today. County Judge Karin Immergut dismissed criminal charges in a civil disobedience protest case which was over two years old, saying the defendants’ constitutional right to a speedy trial had been violated. The protesters immediately turned from celebrating their victory to organizing for a Veteran’s Day, November 11th action, calling on the Postmaster General to halt the scheduled closure of half the nation’s remaining mail processing plants and to retain existing delivery standards, rather than delay America’s mail. The rally, which will also honor veterans’ involvement with the postal service, is slated for noon at Portland’s Waterfront Park. https://www.facebook.com/events/304852693054323/ Ten protestors – including Rev. John Schwiebert, Jamie Partridge, Jack Herbert, Trudy Cooper, Rev. Michael Colvin, Tim Flanagan, and Ann Huntwork -- were arrested on criminal trespass charges inside the now-closed University Station post office on May 24, 2012. While peacefully holding banners which called for “No Closures, No Cuts” and “Occupy the Post Office”, the ten – members of labor unions, faith groups, neighborhood organizations, small business owners, a disabled vet, retirees and the Occupy movement – refused to leave until postal management agreed to keep postal facilities open and full service. Over two years later, after a legal fight that went to the Oregon Supreme Court, the occupiers had hoped to get their day in court before a jury. The activists would have argued that they had tried every other means available – letter writing, phone calls, Congressional visits, rallies, marches, petitions, community hearings, City Council resolutions – but had been unable to stop the dismantling of the postal service by the Postmaster General (PMG). The protestors planned to argue that, in refusing to leave, they were attempting to stop the closure of one-half the nation’s mail processing plants, the gutting of service at half the country’s post offices and the delay of mail. The defendants will continue to argue that the real criminal is the PMG, who violates the Constitution (Article 1, sec. 8), Title 39 and Title 18, sec. 1701 & 1708 of the US Code by willfully obstructing & delaying the mail. http://www.facebook.com/events/434272496711167/

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance.

Rally for $15 and statewide gathering at the capitol building in Salem! (Buses leaving from Portland, Medford & Eugene, more info to come; there are more than one facebook event pages for this rally...sign up for one and you'll be kept informed...) The Fight for $15 is spreading across the country and Oregon is no exception. Employees at Home Forward (formerly The Portland Housing Authority), seasonal parks workers in Portland, and Multnomah County workers have all recently won $15 minimum wages, unions and community organizations around the state are endorsing a $15 minimum wage, and workers from Ashland to Portland to The Dalles are organizing to fight for $15 in Oregon! During the upcoming 2015 legislative session, Democrats will likely push to raise the state's minimum wage. They not only need to raise the minimum wage to a living wage of $15/hr, but they need to repeal the preemption law that prevents cities and counties in Oregon from raising the minimum wage locally. On behalf of 15 Now PDX and Portland Jobs with Justice, bills to repeal the intrusive and undemocratic preemption law and to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr in Oregon will be submitted for the 2015 legislative session. We can win, but we need the working class of Oregon to stand up with us and demand $15 Now! We call all on Oregon's working class to rally on the steps of the capitol building in Salem on January 24, 2015 from noon - 1pm in order to get out in front of this eventual legislative discussion and ensure that our state legislators know that Oregon's working class demands a real living wage of $15/hr! Rally at the capitol building at noon. Then head to the Ike Box at 1pm for the gathering where you can get plugged in with other minimum wage activists and 15 Now chapters from around the state. Join us and Fight for $15 for the whole State of Oregon! http://www.facebook.com/events/1498828657062887/

On Sunday, January 25, 2015, join over 2,000 Portlanders for a New Year celebration of Japanese American traditions! Mochitsuki is, in its strictest sense, the pounding of rice into tasty, sticky rice cakes, or mochi, that symbolizes starting the New Year with a full belly in hopes of abundance in the year ahead. The 19th annual edition of Mochitsuki is a family-friendly festival offering a feast for the senses, with food, art, performances, and many exceptional hands-on cultural experiences for all ages. Over the years this celebration has grown in popularity, and this year Mochitsuki will move and now take place at Portland State University’s Smith Memorial Student Union.

If you are intrigued by RPGs and/or story games, but have had your doubts about jumping into an established group or felt uncomfortable going to another organized gaming event, you are SUPER DUPER EXTRA welcome.Story games are a little bit like board games, and a lot like grown-up versions of the “let’s pretend” games you probably played as a child. Above all, they are about TELLING A STORY TOGETHER. It’s not about winning or losing, it’s not about making the best character or mastering the rules, it’s about CREATING something together and HAVING FUN. These games take no more than a few minutes to learn, play within a couple of hours, and focus on story rather than rules. Come check it out! We're always looking for more folks to help facilitate, so shoot me a message or post below if you have a game you'd like to share!Let's enjoy each others' company and play quick, easy-to-learn, story-based role playing games in a welcoming female-centered environment. The games don't usually begin until 6:30 but feel free to join us for witty banter before hand.
